Lost Coast Outpost conributor Mark McKenna sends the following report from Eureka:
We had two individuals just off the oyster processing plant find an unresponsive man floating face-down in the water. They attempted to throw him a lifeline, but he was unresponsive. Some people leaned over the side of the boat and they towed him to shore. He was pronounced dead.
They know the subject’s ID — he was known to law enforcement — but his name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
